Oh, she went there. Brandi Glanville posted a photo of her butt via Instagram on Monday, April 11 — and it's all thanks to Kim Kardashian.

The former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, 43, revealed that she decided to share the NSFW snapshot because she was inspired by the controversial nude selfie that Kardashian, 35, shared late last month.

"Ive struggled with wanting to post this but I've worked so hard on my body &at 43 after 2 kids I'm very proud," Glanville wrote. "I love that @kimkardashian makes the point that moms are hot even after kids and post sexy selfies. Ive prepped for the haters & was given the blessing of my family! Zero filters zero photo shop #ankle weights work!"

In the pic, a topless Glanville shows off her backside as she leans against a stool in a bedroom. She conceals her face and is wearing only a black thong.

When you're like I have nothing to wear LOL

As previously reported, Kardashian received mixed reviews when she posted a throwback photo of herself on March 7. Celebrity supporters such as Ariel Winter and Emily Ratajkowski applauded Kardashian for promoting body positivity, while Bette Midler and Chloë Grace Moretz slammed the reality star. (Ratajkowski and Kardashian later posed topless together in a bathroom in solidarity.) On March 8, Kardashian defended her photo.

"I am empowered by my body. I am empowered by my sexuality. I am empowered by feeling comfortable in my skin. I am empowered by showing the world my flaws and not being afraid of what anyone is going to say about me. And I hope that through this platform I have been given, I can encourage the same empowerment for girls and women all over the world," Kardashian wrote on her blog.

"It's 2016. The body-shaming and slut-shaming—it's like, enough is enough. I will not live my life dictated by the issues you have with my sexuality. You be you and let me be me," she added. "I am a mother. I am a wife, a sister, a daughter, an entrepreneur and I am allowed to be sexy."
